Electronic timesheets and other forms

Currently all department employees must fill out paper time sheets and SF-71 leave requests. These have to be then typed into a computer system which takes 1 FTE per 400 employees (takes our office staff 1 day per 40 persons for data entry). There are about 1,000 different pieces of office software designed for this function and I'm positive that it would cost less in paper and time to use even the most expensive software on the market for this activity.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
